Age-Friendly Action Community Kicks Off March 10

Age-Friendly Action Community

The second cohort of the MHA Keystone Center Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community kicks off with its first webinar March 10. The Action Community builds on the national Age-Friendly Health Systems movement and aims to improve care for older adults and decrease overall healthcare costs resulting from poor-quality care, including fewer complications, fewer undesired medical interventions and improved patient safety.

Participants will test an evidence-based framework in their setting, hear from subject matter experts and share learning with peers during the seven-month virtual community. Hospital, ambulatory and extended care teams in Michigan are invited to enroll at no cost through March 31.

This initiative is made possible through funding from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund and will run through September 2021. Learn more about how the Action Community’s virtual format will provide flexibility and support during the pandemic.
